Help young children learn to limit screen time and fun ways to spend “screens-off” time.

Screen Time Is Not Forever Board Book

Best Behavior® Series


As important as screens are in our lives, we all need to unplug, especially children. This active, encouraging board book offers young children and families an easy way to set boundaries and limit screen time, and to find enjoyable ways to spend time without screens. “Together, we say, ‘All done.’ Now follow up with something fun.”

Screen time is important for learning and can be helpful and fun, but it’s important for toddlers to learn that screen time can’t be all the time. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends consistent limits on screen time for young children. With her trademark mix of empathy and encouragement, author Elizabeth Verdick offers appealing and healthy alternatives to using screens, like singing, swinging, or playing pretend!

The book ends with additional ideas and activities to help adults navigate screen time with toddlers and preschoolers.
